PLACE IT WHERE IT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS.
It is really amusing to read the charges made by the Demo-
cratic candidates, henchmen and the democratically inclined proas
that the Republican! by failing to include a plank on Americanism
in their platform, are subjecting themselves to being called pro-
German. ' . ■
Mr, Lionberger. Mr. Connett and others aeera to forget that
it is not the strained relations with Germany which haa just afford-
ed a chance for someone to be charged with being un-American;
these gentlemen do not have to reach across the Atlantic to find a
loop hole wherein there may be an opportunity to cast reflections;
they have only to search the record of the Democratic party from
the time of its incipiency; to find-there, the most flagrant acta of
un- Americanism that have ever disgraced a nation.
Let Messrs. Lionberger and Connett and the editors of the
democratic press disguise themselves as American Negroes and
make a tour of the south; let them be subjected to the humiliation
of riding in foul-smelling Jim Crow cars after having paid first-
class fares: let them attempt to go in any southern eating house or
restaurant to appease their hunger, and be driven out as though
they were dogs; let them -face a Negro- hating southern judge or
Justice and be sentenced* to a term in the chain-gang for daring to
walk upon the sidewalk of a 1 main street in a southern cily; let them
chance to stop off at Bowie, Texas, where their eyes will be greet
ed by this sign, "Niggmr Don't Lit Thm San Go Down On Yoa;'
let them gaze upon the ruthless act of a law-breaking mob, in its
hellish pastime of burning a helpless Negro man of woman, be-
cause of some minor act of indiscretion: we say, let them in the
disguise of an American Negro witness these things, and then let
them place the charge of on - Ammricanttm where it rightfully be-

We have asked your indulgence of the above editorial in order
that you may realize the close relation that wax has, with an inter-
nal race question.
America has her race question which involves not only the re-
lations between the whites and colored in the southern states; but
which confronts America in the Philippines, in Cuba, in Porto hico
and in her other island possessions. In-other aspects the race
question is, and will be one of the perennial and absorbing problems
in the development of every country wherein it exists.
For the consideration, not to aay settlement, of a question so
complicated and so involved in prejudice and passion and wrong,
no light or teaching that history affords should be neglected.
These questions were first faced by the Spaniards, and in the
four hundred years' history of Spanish America there is a wealth
of human experience in the contact of races that may be drawn
upon for warning or instruction or possibly for reassurance.

A FULL RESPONSIBILITY.
^Prior to the recent primaries we advised the people of this
city to vote for Mayor Henry W. Kiel as the choice of the Republi-
can party of St. Louis, for mayor at the coming election next
Tuesday. Subaeqaent to the primaries, we acknowleged our pleas-
ure at the results and congratulated the voters upon their wise and
splendid choice. ' We also tofd the colored people of this city that
we fully realised the responsibility that we were taking upon our-
selves by-advising them to vote for Mr. Kiel.
We are glad of. the opportunity to again call the attention of
the voters to a more important election (so far as the Negro is
concerned) which is to take place next Tuesday, April M; this
time it will be a Republican who has made a good mayor and. one
who has done more for the Negroes of this city than any of his
predecessors, and more than we could ever have the slightest hope
of receiving from a Democratic. The Democratic party is waiting
its opportunity to take from our .people their political and civil
rights. You are able to see the contrast, you should act according.

HEEP THE LESSON OF RUSSIA.-O. AMERICA !
"The duty to die for one's country should be predicated upon
the right -to live in, one's country under equal .laws and without
The above .quotation of the Hon. Oscar Straus, former Ambas-
,sador to Turkey and former Secretary of Commerce and Laber in
Cabinet of ex-President Roosevelt, was heartily endorsed by Count
Beakeodorf, the Russian Ambassador in London during a recent
interview between these two great men. The subject of the inter-
view was principally the condition of the Jewish subjects of Russia
and was brought about by the fact that Jews were taking their
places' in the present great European, struggle on the side of their
oppressors, the Russians.
When one has read the interview mentioned above, he cannot
keep the mind from, turning to America, and while reports have it
that America was the first to recognize and congratulate the new
repablic o( Rtmia. the reader will wonder , at the plight of the
Negroes in America who are but half freje and who have stood
shoulder to shoulder with the Americans ih all of her wars. Sure-
ly there must be a strain of sympathy in/the heart of every Negro
for the Jewish people and if it takes a great war to give a race of
people their freedom, aa has been the case of the Jews in Russia,
then the American Negro cannot but yearn for war.

1917, is well worth reading:

An affectionate tribute to the late
Rev. Caasius M. C. Mason from one of
entered into life on the morning of
Wednesday, March 21st, 1017, Rev. Cas-
aiua M. Clay Mason, for 39 years rector
of All Saints Episcopal Church in the
city of St. Louis.
Grant him Thine eternal rest, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
The sudden calling away— almost with-
out warning— in the midst of his labors
of this beloved priest of the church was
a profonnd stock to the whole com.
munity, and to the members of his con-
gregation comes as a personal bereave,
ment. For to us he was not only our
rector, but a courteous, kindly Christian
gentleman and friend. His zeal and
affection for all the work of the- parish
and ita beat interests, were as. sincere
and rffeetive u human devotion and
srlf-ascrlAce coald make tbem. His lov-
ing heart kept him near\to humanity,
and his '' reverent spirit communed
with God." In ehafacter hK waa mas-
terful, yet truly priestly, and full of
strenuous vitality. And though he now
"rests from his labors.'' he has left an
abiding memorial 'of his many virtues.
And in bis passing it may be truly
said of him, "He being dead,' yet
It is said that the light- of certain
■tars is still reflected on the earth, after
the stsrs the as elves have passed from
the firmament; so we may hope thai it
will be with the influence of tbisgra
shall no longer see him
face- to face, but the world hi better
he lived, and his Influence will
be unconsciously felt by al] who knew
and loved him. But how we shall miss
him! Fi/r nearly forty veers be has
freely and faithfully rendered his serv
ice to the pariah "of All Saints.- Very
rarely was he sbaent from hia aecus-
e chancel. Seldom
tar's cold, and summer's heat, In fair
wsathar M foul, we found him there
steadfast in the faith and quietly eam'
est in hit. convictions of truth and flnty.
Faithful, devout, gentle, patient, hope-
ful, loving true!
Words are at best a poor vehicle to
exprsaa onr appreciation of a noble life.
It soema almost an impertinence to
t»y, "Well dtrnt, good and faithful
■arrant of Christ," when ha whom we
so rncoursge has passed beyond the
veil, and heard the eneomlom from,*
greater lips than ours.
Still it is on* privilege to bear record
of hia work; for that uvea after him.
Ho loved trnth and rignteoosnesa with.

falseness and baseness. He was an on-
wavering friend, aa thoughtful, u gen-
erous, and as appreciative of Httle kind-
nesses aa of great ones. .Mindful of hia-
caliing aa a priest of the ehnreh, he-
never lost an opportunity to exercise his
office and ministry among the lick and
suffering. His religions life waa
marked by a cheerfulness of spirit and'
simplicity of faith, -accompanied by a
flrmneaa of conviction, and franknets.of
atowal which attracted all who knew'
him, and commanded their sincere re-
spect. For, after all, a consecrated-
Christian life, -ii "earth's bcit witneu

rest which remaineth for the people of
Ood. -Most gently tbe summons came-
at the last, and bis peaceful spirit

Thin, another of the stent which
Jetua performed, It recorded only
John. It probably occurred In Octo-
ber, all months before the crucifixion,
while Jesus waa attending the Feast
of the Tabernacles. There ar? -"-
other cases of blindness recorded
having been cured. Look* them up.
I. The Caaa (vr. 1-4). It was abno
Jutely hopeless. No human skill could
touch It, but Jesus "passed by.
that changed everything. What men
cannot do Jesus can. Jesus In passing

as wonderful to happen (John 14; 12)
This blind man Illustrates tbe unsaved
tinner (I Cor. 2:14). He never bad
teen. He was beyond human help (v.
32). He had doubtless given up all
hope of seeing. He vat without sym-
pathy, suspected and despised (vr. 2,
Bt). . Poor— be waa a beggar. - He it
also a type of the nation of Israel
(Rev. 3:17). We. moat not attempt to

that of compassion (vv. 2, 4 and 6).
Sick nets sometimes manifests God's
sustaining grace (II Cor. 12:8-10). It
la duubticwi true that n large percent-
age of sickness la the direct result of
sin (John 5:14; Mk. 2:0; Acta 12:23),
■onset of course, indirectly (Job 23:14-
II. The Cure (vr, Ml). The word
fmusl" in verse four la a strong one.
The, time fur us to do on*- work ia
"now," This word "must" carries -with
It the idea of a divine imperative, and
the reason for that Imperatlveneaa Is
the approaching "night" Night la
coming fast when no man can w^rk.
Notice tbe works we are to do are not
our own, but "the works of Mm that
■eat me." Compare carefully verses
two and four, and see that Jeans con-
sidered delivering the man from evil

Let us have more of action. The
means used in thlt cure were clay and
spittle. The miracle was performed In
plain view of all who- might see. The
man did not ask Jess* to help him, bat
Jesas bad gone where he was (v. 6).
His words, !*Qo wash." were a test of
the mans faith; (it Kings B:10-14),
snd'hii. part 1q The rtuiuurtlun waa a
testimony that Ifwaa Chriat who
worked tbe cure. The nae of the
material means in thlt ceremony made
the man more willing to. go and waah.
It gave him something to do, and doing
la always an end to faith. Slloam
means "sent," snd was a type of Jesus
himself (v. 4; John 10:36; Horn. 8:3;
Gal 4.4). If we wish to receive sight
for our blind eyes, we should go to
him and buthe (John 3:12). \
lit Tha Controversy (v, 12 to end of
Chapter). This controversy gave op-
portunity for testimony, is we
already seen,* first of all Opoo the part
of Ifeej man whose testimony whs pro-

the fact He was not acquainted with

prophet (t. IT), and later Hill he
recognises him. as "The Son of God"

lished beyond question the fsct of tbe
care. It brought oat tbe -deity of
Christ (v. 33). The man was eicoro-
nauulcaled. but for that matter he was
already ouralde because of his physical
